IE not listing indic font in webpage list RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created a malayalam unicode font and installed in Win XP SP3 & Win 7. All apps work fine except IE, which fails to recognise this font in the webpage list. Tried in both IE6&7.

    I tried to set my font for malayalam language under Tools->Internet options->Fonts from general tab -> selected malayalam from drop-down. My font was expected to get listed in the left pane under webpage fonts. It is not getting listed.

    Support for complex script is already enabled. Font contains Basic Latin characters and code pages are correctly listed in the font. MS setting points to 1252 ANSI. Basic Latin and Malayalam are the code pages available in the font.

    Any pointers?

  • Hi,

     

    That issue may related with malayalam font which you created. Could you please share the font for me? You can upload it to SkyDrive: Upload to SkyDrive.

  • Hi,

     

    If you want to add font in IE, you should create .ttf file(True Type font file), then copy the file to Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Fonts, it will be installed automatically.

     

    Then you can find it in IE\Tools\Internet Options\General\Fonts

  • This was already done. Several other fonts which are installed in the system are listed properly.

  • Thanks. I have uploaded the font to skydrive: http://cid-8ffce90c18b8df46.office.live.com/self.aspx/F1/workfont.ttf

     

    Sorry, I was not well for past few days, hence the delay.

  • Hi,

     

    Base on my test, your font will appear in “latin based” and “User Defined”. You can find the font there.

  • But that does not serve the purpose. The purpose is to see malayalam unicode web pages which unfortunately does not happen unless I select this font under malayalam. Selecting it under "user defined" does not render the malayalam web page with my font.

    Moreover, there should be a reason why the font is not getting listed under malayalam. Any setting which is missing?

  • Normal configuration seem cannot add a font to a special language script. That may related with the technology of “Font Embedding”. This link may helpful to you:
